february, which is pertinent because he made an important point. he said, maybe you can even use the word. the arab spring will come to china? i think we should be quite self-confident, not overconfident, but i think we have a sustainable model and then much less certain that china has at this point a truly sustainable model. so that's not really my worry from a european point of view. my worry is a different worry. i worry as we look at these global challenges that paula mentioned from terrorism to piracy to proliferation, it better, et cetera, our ability to create and maintain a functioning system of global government -- governance appears to have declined. our ability to have a working system of global governance. when i look at what's going on this area, to u.n. security council is dysfunctional, not working, not capable of coming to a conclusion. the g20 has not fulfilled, at least not according to me, the expectations we had when this larger body was created. in other words, from a european point of view, you need to worry about the fact that europe will have obviously a smaller po

"squawk box" begins right now. >>> good morning. welcome to "squawk box." i'm becky quick along with joe kernen and andrew ross sorkin and the polls are opening in various parts of the east coast as we speak. some 30 million americans have already voted, including the folks in the tiny village of dixville notch. this follows tradition, they voted just after midnight and with the lowest turnout in almost 50 years, this time around it was a tie. five votes for president obama, five for governor romney. back in 2008, president obama defeated john mccain 16-5. let's take a look at the map. 270 electoral votes are needed to win. nbc news now shows president obama with 237 likely. romney 206. and 95 in the toss-up column, so it is going to be a very long evening, andrew. >> i think we'll be staying up pretty late and then we'll be back at it tomorrow morning. but cnbc's team of reporters has the country covered this morning. stationed in battleground states, campaign headquarters and here at election central. among our

numbers in their own polling. and one side or the other is going to be wrong because they are using the wrong sample size or sample set. >> that's correct. you know, as i have looked at this, i think you have different assumptions about turnout. we always joke, the cliche, it depends on turnout. but scientifically or more practically, you are going to get more democrats than republicans to show up by a wide margin, you are going to get something close to even between republicans and democrats or possibly you are going to have a republican edge. and historically, democrats out perform republicans by, you know, a poign, two points or three points. it is not usually like 20 very 8, when it was by 8 points. so i think the question is, are we going to see a repeat of the 2008 turnout, where the democrats did the best they have done in a gen scpraigz we have seen in many of the sampling of the state polls that look good for the president, or something closer to 2004, in which president bush at the time squeaked out a narrow victory. i think these are the questions that i am trying to figu
